Terrible festivals - 2018 edition


#21

Tbh Goldie Looking Chain probably deserve the “Legends Set” at Glasto, so they’ve got an absolute steal there!


#22

Fun fact: I bought Free Peace Sweet by Dodgy (yes, I know) around the time of Euro 96. So whenever I think of losing on penalties to Germany, I get an instant earworm of “If You’re Thinking Of Me”.


#23

When I think of Britpop… I think of Heaven 17


#24

Fun Fact: my cassette version of that same album came with three copies of the inlay card.


#25

I’ll not hear a bad word said against Free Peace Sweet. Solid gold that album is.


#26

Homegrown was (I think) the second or third album I ever bought.

I AM THE GRASSMAAAAANNNN


#27

And that album too, solider gold. I think I’m a Dodgy fan.

…shit


#28

Have fun watching Dodgy in Knebworth!!!111!!!

Fair enough, but the problem is that this is as good as it gets for Scotland festival-wise. It was being touted as an alternative to T In The Park originally, but now it just seems to be siphoning off the dross in it’s abscence.

It’s a pretty poor show when we used to be capable of staging festivals like Connect alongside T : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Connect_Music_Festival#Line-up. 2007’s line-up in particular was strong stuff for it’s time. That’s the sort of thing that TRNSMT should be putting on.

I fookin will R Kid

This makes me think that we need a Britpop vs Krautrock thread (in a Pro Remain spirit of course).

Good lord, I’ve just noticed it’s MPBH:

What with @deep-blue also making an appearance in the last few weeks, it’s like Old DiS never went away.


#32

Forever gutted I didn’t go to that Connect festival as a young lad. T in the Park was always easier as it was like 30 minutes drive from my house and everyone I knew went.

Not really operating on the same level but Electric Fields is a brilliant wee festival.


#33

The “Plus 1 more act TBA” is a personal highlight.


#34

You know, I’d never heard of this one. That’s quite a decent line-up they had last year, might have to keep an eye on this one. Looks very Connect-y too. Thanks for bringing that to my attention!


#35

I went last year, cracking lineup and really well organised. Good food, decent drink options and full of sound humans.


#36

Amazing.
Looks like this has started a class row on twitter and Sean is berating the Drowned in Sound twitter account.
And now big man Stuart Braithwaite has weighed in.


#37

I’m reading bits as Sean talking to himself from different accounts


#38

Ignore this.


#39

I’ve posted about this instagram account I’m obsessed with before but Cool Britannia is a ‘must’ for them Clive. https://www.instagram.com/p/BengUOqFV5x/?taken-by=oasis_roses_beatles

I had it around the same time, reminds me of that summer. One Of Those Rivers is another sad one.
